a bright line. it says if you engage in a wongful action, there is a defense called the insanity defense which never works as most of us know because we don't recognize it. should we recognize it, that's an interesting question. should we have a more robust concept of diminished responsibility in light of the understanding that some people have less control over their preferences and desires or should we have better sentencing schemes or get rid of incarceration and come up with different models of trying to deal with punishment once we understand people have wrong selections. i think those are all interesting questions, but is there free will? well, the fact that almost everybody in the audience raised either their right or left hand contemplated it and were quickly able to act and respond. that to me says, yes, there is. now what do we want to do about it? now that we understand that those of us in the audience or up here that like chocolate cake may not have control over it, how do we want to account for that if at all in the criminal justice system? to date, we haven't. in the future
to leave seminole county was denied. >> you keep bringing up publiclity, the case, the defense does and argue it's unsafe for them there. who is generating this publicity? why are we here for this motion? >> that's the lead prosecutor in the case. he is upset the judge agreed to rule on the defense motion to end gps monitoring of zimmerman. he is charged with murder in the shooting death of 17-year- old trayvon martin and he pleaded not guilty claiming it was self-defense. zimmerman's attorneys argued today's hearing was necessary because there is a new judge on the case and not all the evidence was presented at the last hearing. >>> more backlash today from the royal hoax. legal experts say the australian radio station behind the prank call could face criminal charges. the question now, whether a private conversation was broadcast without the permission of the participants. last week's prank has been widely condemned after it aired. it's linked to the apparent suicide of the nurse who put the call through allowing the radio station's deejays to get confidential information about ka
? >> defense stocks, defense index hit an historic high and with all the talk of skwegsration and certainly on defense spending you would think they would be down. another sign that the markets are optimistic things will work out. airlines were up today. very positive comments on capacity and business coming back after sandy, so there's two groups that held up and, of course, apple up as well. >> interesting to see the defense stocks act that way, bob, even though we're expecting layoffs in the sector. >> yeah. this is what's remarkable to me. overall you would think orders, like future orders, which is what defense spending -- defense stocks trade on would be noticeable to the downside and there's ate lot of worry. not underperforming the market. since the beginning of the deekz december, they have been outperforming. >> go ahead, debra. >> been at the tax rates before and it wasn't like nobody jumped out of market. stocks did outperform at market. >> but that was a very different time, wasn't it? we were on the east internet. you had dotcoms soaring and money moving into technology right

take you three or four years before you have to make the changes, but there is no defense to making the changes. even if it is a historical building. that is not a defense. when i get involved, it is because 90% of the time, the tenant is the only one who gets the notice, though the notice is addressed both to the tenant and landlord. next thing you see, you are handed a piece of paper by some stranger, and it is a lawsuit. then you need to find a lawyer. probably 90% of these cases are in federal court. it becomes much more costly to get a lawyer involved. most lawyers charged somewhere between $5,000 or $10,000 to get involved in some of these cases. you need to file a formal answer in the court. you will be in a mediation process, which means you will meet with people appointed by the court to try to resolve this issue. the revolution is just what i said. it is major repairs if they are appropriate, and not all repairs are in demand. and, to settle the damaged portion of the case. in my experience, the damages claimed usually run somewhere between $15,000 or $5,000, and attorneys

(laughter) but dent worry, your fall will be cushioned by lava. (laughter) now, obviously it's a negotiation, people take a hard-line position. with the tax rate being the lowest in america since the 1950s, most likely we'll raise the tax for the up 2er% at some point, right? >> raising tax rates is unacceptable. >> jon: okay. so what exactly is your idea of the a negotiation? >> the president's idea of a negotiation is "roll over and do what i ask." (laughter) >> jon: at least once he has you on your back he asks. (laughter) i can't wait till -- (applause) they're applauding the lack of rape. (laughter) (applause) now they're just mimicking me.

the commeecial break, you said there is a meeting with the defense ministry. what do we know about that? what will happen? >> this happened late in the day. the defense minister is trying to acts as a mediator between president morsi and the opposition groups at loggerheads in the streets right now. he summoned, he called a meeting. he says it is not political. it is an effort to cool things down, calm things down. president morsi did know about this meeting in advance. he was stunned by his own defense minister. i think it's a mistake right now to view the egyptian defense people as hostile or, acting contrary to their own country's interests. if egypt falls apart, everything falls a i part. -- apart. they don't want that. melissa: mike barrett, this is great point. in some sense wee don't know who we're giving the planes to. >> i used to live in turkey. i love it as a country. we see islamist oriented government has taken over the reins in terms of military. they put the senior military officers on trial. as a result they now exert a lot more political influence over this. while i agree wit

-called defense of marriage act stewing governmental discrimination against gay couples we defining for federal purposes a marriage as an union between a man and a woman. on friday the supreme court announced it would weigh in agreeing to take a pair of cases challenging the definition of marriage. with me now to weigh in on what we can expect as gay marriage heads to high court as richard coraide former president ofe quality matters akhil reed amar. thank you for joining me. >> if you're legally married in a state like new york, the federal government cannot recognize your marriage. a number of couples sued and said that was unconstitutional, and that's the issue in the defensive marriage act case. in the other case, the proposition 8 case, a number of couples from california sued to overturn the proposition 8 which is the 2008 law which outlawed same-sex marriage after the courts said it was required. >> cenk: and so, akhil you're able to thread the needle. explain the constitutional difference between these cases and how the supreme court could say doma could be unconstitutional, the federal
self defense. it's common sense to see where that's going to line up. >> the argument that was thrown at me, and hands up, i come from a country with strict gun control. very few gun owners there, we don't have a second amendment. we don't have a right to bear arms. and it's not my country in that sense, therefore i have absolute respect for the constitution. what i find difficult is the way the pro-gun lobby, and i use the phrase quite deliberately. a certain type of pro-gun lobbyist twists this debate in a very unhealthy way. they always say it's never the gun, it's always the person, with a clear indication that the people are evil and they perpetrate evil with these stories. three stories, december 5th, a 4-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his younger brother in minneapolis with his father's handgun. december 6th, a 7-year-old finds his grandfather's gun and shoots his sister. december 9th, a boy is shot when a gun goes off in a parking lot. these aren't evil people. these are kids. and they just happened to stumble across firearms. >> and in fairness, there are legitimat

. >> host: so for 2013, we're talking about a total of $109 billion in cuts. the non-defense part of that, discretionary spending makes up about eight eight billion. -- 38 billion. non-defense mandatory is 16 billion. can you explain the difference? >> guest: the mandatory has to do with entitlement programs that are beneficiaries or committed to receiving by law and discretionary spending is where congress has an annual appropriation and that has a lot more flexibility year to year which to cut and which to raise. >> host: so if this happens, let's just begin with what's not on the table. what is exempted from sequestration when it comes to domestic spending? >> guest: well, there's a list of civilian, military pay, veterans benefits, a lot of the what would be called social welfare programs, like the food stamps or snap program. women, infant children. there's retirement, social security, medicaid is exempt. there is also federal salaries in terms of their general schedule brackets can not be affected. >> host: so there is a lot of cuts that would go through if sequestration happens but

warned embattled president bashar al assad against such action, defense secretary leon panetta says syria may be backing away from the threat. here is what pa net ta said early this morning on a flight to kuwait city. >> we haven't seen anything new indicating any aggressive steps to move forward in that way, but we continue to monitor it very closely and we continue to make clear to them that they should not under any means make use of these chemical weapons against their own population. >> and here's an example of how just murky the divisions are in syria, later today washington will declare one of the group of rebels a foreign terrorist organization. according to federal documents the group is merely another alias or al qaeda in iraq. >>> this morning we know the name of the navy s.e.a.l. killed during a raid to rescue a kidnapped american doctor in afghanistan. the s.e.a.l. is identified as petty officer first class nicolas checque. barbara starr joins us from the pentagon with more on petty officer checque, a member of s.e.a.l. team six, the same elite unit that of course took out os

some vowing to support the treaty voted no. one was the home school legal defense association. the hslda, the powerful lobby group around the country whose leader you're about to meet. they had some very strong things to say about the treaty, but the notion was basically this. if it were to pass, they said, the u.n. treaty would somehow let the u.n. mandate how parents of disabled kids in america cared for their children. americans -- among the senators echoing that center is mike lee of utah. keeping them honest, though, when i asked him to specify how this u.n. influence might manifest itself, here's the answer he gave. >> can you name any other u.n. treaty that has forced changes in u.s. law? >> i didn't come prepared to cite supreme court precedent on this point but it's a well -- >> what you're saying is hypothetical. you're using a bunch of hypotheticals saying this is going to force abortion rights for disabled people overseas. i mean, some groups are saying children with glasses are going be taken from their parents. you're using all these very scary hypotheticals. you
